3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear lighter golden with a nice thick frothy white head and some sticky lacing. Aroma is fairly fruity, sweet cereal, corn, grassy, noble hops, smells thick. Flavor is quite aggressive, lots of Saaz, slightly cheesy, a great deal of residual sweetness, fairly hot, some cereal sweetness but without a lot of character. Medium bodied up front with nice fizzy round carbonation with a slight sizzle but finishes rather syrupy and unpleasant. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I definitely prefer the Sam Adams.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bu en fut (4 oz) à la brasserie à Boston, le 12 juillet 2009.Blonde mi-claire, petit collet. Arome d’houblon pas très sec, notes d’herbe fruités. Goût de céréal croustillant et houblonné, amerturme sec, aucune présance d’alcool. C’est dure à croire qu’elle est forte cette bohémiène!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium sized white head, good retention and a nice coating lace. Lightly hazy gold color. Faint nose of grass, straw, sulphur and some grainy malts. Body is medium with a tingly carbonation but still soft at the same time, light acidity. Grainy maltiness is lightly sweet, doughy with notes of lightly spicey hops, grass and some floral notes. Lightly sweet finish is almost balanced by the just shy bittering. Better than expected. Bottle procured @statelineliquors.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thin head of white bubbles. Recedes quickly and leave a thin sheen of foam. Aroma of springtime. New grass and flowers along with some light lemon and mint. Color is a hazy golden orange. Mild flavor with some sweet malts, herbal flavors and a bit of citrusy hops. Noticable alcohol presence and flavor. Kind of overpowers the mild flavor. Finishes sweet and malty with a lingering hotness. An ok brew. The more I drink of it the less I like it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours a glowing golden color with little if any head. Boozey like malt liquor, strong hop presence that interlaces with honey, resin, and flowers. Grassy and earthy as well. Not bad. Substantial mouthfeel.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden yellow pour with a small white head. Aroma is toasted malt, some graininess, caramel, and a slight hop bitterness. Flavor is sweet light sugar malt, sweet citrus, and a mild bitterness. Palate is full for the style- smooth finishing resinously.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasting – Wine Source. Gold, creamy white head. Sweet toasted corn and grassy-grain aromas warm to softer hints of earthed bread and citrus throughout. Toasted and lightly sweetened caramel flavors round with a cornbread and kiss of floral hop finish. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, light bittersweet and bready finish. As I really enjoy the Imperial Pilsner style, this one falls somewhere in the middle class…

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, light gold pour, minimal head. Aroma holds lots of grain, toasted sesame, and a bit of hop bitterness. Sweet malt flavor, grain, a bit of citrus hop- nothing complex, but a tasty lager. Solid for the style.
